The country watched and prayed as Joey Feek fought a brave battle against cervical cancer.  She ultimately lost her battle and passed away on March 4th.  Her husband Rory was by her side every step of the way.

Fighting through the heartbreak and the loss of his beloved wife, Rory and his family laid to rest the love of his life. 

“On Tuesday we laid my beautiful wife to rest,” Rory wrote in his blog. “In a grove of sassafras trees behind our farmhouse, with friends and family gathered around, we said goodbye to the greatest person I have ever known. The service started in our barn/concert hall.  The last time we were on that stage, was in early October and Joey and I were singing together...”

God Bless you Rory, and God bless your beautiful family!
